Giant £5.9 Million Online Slots Jackpot won
Just last week we reported on how an Irish mother won a $408k online slots jackpot. And already, we have an even bigger prize to report after one lucky, unidentified player won a £5,882,870 jackpot through the Mega Moolah game.
The nearly £5.9 million jackpot is a record for the Casino Rewards network, which offers Mega Moolah. A Casino Rewards spokeman discussed the record jackpot by saying the following:
We are blown away by last night’s £5.9 million win! It’s even bigger than K.E.’s $5.5 million win before. We’ve seen a massive increase in play on over the past few months while the jackpot was high, which all contributed to it getting even bigger – £5.9 million is the biggest progressive jackpot payout that we’ve ever seen!
Before “K.E.” held the record at the Casino Rewards network, a Finnish player by the name of “Klaus” set the top mark after winning over $5.5 million. Klaus commented following his 2009 win by saying:
When I saw $5,556,753 flash on my screen I though it was a US phone number. It couldn’t be a jackpot, I must be mistaken! So I just got up from my table, went outside to clear my head, and then came back in again for another look – and noticed $5.5 million sitting in my casino account.
Going back to the £5,882,870, this converts to $9,511,424 in US dollars, which is a tremendous amount of money! However, it’s pretty far off the biggest online slots jackpot of all-time. This record goes to a 20-year-old Finnish student who collected €11.7 million ($15.77 million) for winning a progressive jackpot.
What’s incredible about this story is that the student didn’t even normally play slots; he simply received a few free spins through his sports bets. He then turned the free spins in a fortune that could last a lifetime!
